Accustomed to Her Face
This song has a special meaning to me. Not only is it Wes Montgomery’s arrangement of I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face, from one of my all time favorite musicals ‘My Fair Lady’, It takes me back to my childhood. I’ve seen My Fair Lady so many times with my father playing Henry Higgins. In my opinion he was the best Henry Higgins ever!!
This song is so beautiful because he sings it the moment he realizes how much he cares for Eliza. He realizes she is, in fact, a human being with feelings and emotions and not just an experiment to win a bet.
And now it will forever be the piece I played for my first proficiency exam at Berklee. I’ll never forget it.
